study shows that health care slowed in 2008. centers for medicare and medicaid services say spending totaled $2.3 trillion in 2008. that's a growth of only 4.4%. the slowest rate of increase since the cms began tracking spending in 1960. the government blames the recession for a lower number. >>> house democrats are meeting now to talk about the next step in the health care reform effort. >> it seems they may be ready to forego the formal negotiation possible necessary order to come up with a final bill. but there are new calls to make those talks public. nbc's luke russert joins us from capitol hill. so, luke, we will talk about the c-spanish u in a moment. first, explain ping pong to us, if you will. >> reporter: well, a lot of us know ping pong is a great game that can be played well in a your 80s and 90s. but here up on capitol hill, ping pong is actually a term used that when the house and senate send back ideas about legislation informally without convening the real conference committee. that's the formal process about which the two chambers come together to work on the bill. t

ticket items, the entitlement spending, medicare, medicaid. that's exactly what the president has been working so hard with the congress to put in place some important reforms that will genuinely slow the growth rate of those costs. and that is the most fiscally responsible thing one could be doing at this point. >> ms. romer, final question. 660,000 people dropped out of the work force. what explains that and what happens if they come back in to the unemployment rate? one would assume it will go a lot higher. >> well, you're certainly right on both accounts in the sense that we did see people drop out of the labor force and that is something that tends to happen in recessions. people do become discouraged. and if we start -- when we start to add lots of jobs that will surely encourage some of those, discourage workers to come back in. i think the important thing, whatever effect that might have on the unemployment rate in the short run that would be a good thing. it would mean the economy is expanding, they do see hope, and that is something we'll be looking forward to in the sense of
$1.4 trillion again this year. this freeze will not include defense, homeland security, medicare, social security, foreign aid programs. that leaves just 17% of a $3.5 trillion budget subject to this spending freeze, which is aimed at saving about $25 billion a year. white house correspondent savannah guthrie h more on all this. savannah, late today they added white house salaries to the freeze, apparently. i heard liberals in washington picking all this apart today. conservatives picking it apart. i heard somebody say it's not aimed at them, it's aimed out in the country. >> reporter: no question about it. in poll after poll, independent voters put this near the top of their list of the priorities. federal spending deficit control, they are worried about it. right in time for the state of the union. the president unveiled this three-year discretionary spending freeze. you put your finger on it. notice what's not on there, defense spending and entitlement spending is the real driver of our deficits. social security, medicare and medicaid. nevertheless, they say this freeze will a
security, and veterans programs are exempt, so are the skyrocketing budgets of medicare medicaid, and social security. it's expected to save a mere $250 billion over ten years. that's less than 3% of the $9 trillion that will be added to the national debt during that period. still, the white house says every little bit helps. >> this is not the only thing we're going to be doing to bring down the deficit but what i would say is it's a start. >> reporter: many liberals are furious at the president, bombarding the internet with predictions that social programs will be targeted. republicans say it's not enough. >> we've been on quite a binge over the last 12 months and it's going to take a lot more than this kind of modest freeze to get us back on the right track. >> reporter: some republicans say it's little more than a gimmick. as one put it "it's like going on a diet after winning a pie-eating contest." even some democrats are warning of economic calamity if dramatic action isn't taken. >> we are on a course that is totally unsustainable. >> reporter: despite all the red ink, the

take effect in october, and leave untouched programs like medicare and social security, and national defense. white house spokesman robert gibbs said the cuts would be strategic. >> the president will cut programs that are duplicative or serve what he believes is no important purpose, and instead invest in, as families do, investments for the future. >> woodruff: the proposal would freeze $477 billion out of the $3.5 trillion budget, or about 17% of federal spending. it's designed to save $250 billion over the coming decade. republican leader mitch mcconnell criticized the idea as too small. >> freezing non-defense domestic discretionary spending would be a good idea. however, if you put into the baseline the stimulus, tarp, and you account for inflation, it's not nearly as big a step as the american people are asking us to take. >> woodruff: the president is expected to address the deficit, among other economic issues, including unemployment, in his state of the union message tomorrow night. in an interview with abc news' diane sawyer, mr. obama acknowledged some choices he will mak
the health care bill a mixed grade. medicare experts say would raise health-care spending slightly as a provides coverage for an additional 34 million americans, but over time, cost cutting measures would reduce the increases in health-care spending. >>> parking and some d.c. neighborhoods will cost more, even on saturdays. richard reeve is live in northwest with more on what drivers need to know. >> first of all, bring extra change. we're talking about $2 per hour parking. is not just georgetown, but many of the busiest neighborhoods. georgetown on a saturday night. heavy traffic, busy store fronts, packed parking. >> it is crazy. >> now paying for the parking spaces is more expensive. >> $2 per hour is a lot. >> the district is refitting parking meters in so-called primary zones like georgetown, adams morgan, and you street. >> it is outrageous. >> from 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m., the free districtwide saturday parking is now history. >> i think that was an attraction. >> d.c. officials say the new fee is still less than at new york, l.a., and chicago. >> i guess maybe less peopl

[ laughter ] but i think that the president understands now how serious this problem is. and it requires hatchets and scalpel scalpels. >> reporter: the white house briefed democrats last night on the spending freeze proposal and didn't offer a lot of details. until they do, majority leader harry reid and nancy pelosi, are non-committal. >> glenn: major, thank you. home prices rose for the sixth straight month in november. standard & poor's case-shiller index reports the biggest gains were in phoenix and san francisco. the biggest declines were in new york and chicago. consumer confidence is up by

medicare to create new programs. we don't need $500 billion in new taxes to reform healthcare. there's a chance for the republican party and democrat party to find common sense solutions. i highway hope we'll meet them . >> the polls suggest that the people believe that the government is still broken and i guess there's a political equation that says for the party out of power that, works well but you don't want them to think that. what can you do to give the perception and get the government working again. >> start with healthcare and see if we induce climate and energy. find way to become energy independent and look at immigration, border security. we tried on social security and failed, we tried on healthcare and failed. we tried on immigration and failed. we're running out of the opportunities as a nation to try hard and fail. we need to solve some problems and i think i've demonstrated the ability to reach across the aisle and meet them halfway. that never happened in healthcare. >> thank you. >> so far most indications are the name of the game tonight is jobs. the but key to re
and they don't want to cut millions out of medicare and raising taxes. add failure of spending to keep the unemployment below 8% and you have the state set for massachusetts. if mr. obama doesn't seem to edge far enough to center, remember his base thinks he's gone too far already. >> bret: critics say this is a rhetorical foift pivot to th center and not one of substance. say there is substance behind it. do you think the address is as far as he's going to go? >> partly this was foretold before election in massachusetts. pivot to the economy. that was already in the work. the rest of the steps he's announcing, some are substantive. bill clinton didn't have the same burden to carry. he was not creature of the left that obama has been. he could venture farther without alienating the base. it's harder for obama. >> bret: we'll see. thank you. fox news coverage of the "state of the union" address begins at 8:55 p.m. eastern time on fox news channel. there are questions in one california community about whether one very important book should be kicked out of school. and questions about wh
affairs, homeland security, and foreign aid. it also would not apply to social security or medicare, medicaid, programs which are expected to account for 59% of federal spending this year. this freeze could apply to pretty much anything else from farm subsidies to transportation, to national parks. but the white house reports nobody is going to just start cutting stuff as they put it willy-nilly. >> the president will cut programs that are duplicative or serve what he believes is no important purpose. >> shepard: well, the white house says this freeze could save 10 to $15 billion next year. a little perspective? that's roughly 1% of next year's projected deficit. the freeze proposal brought a blunt response from the office of the house minority leader. congressman john boehner spokesman releasing a statement that reads: give washington democrats unprecedented spending bing, this is like announcing that you you're going on a diet after winning a pie-eating contest. for that matter, some democrats don't seem too enthusiastic either. major garrett is our senior white house corresponde
spending. that means medicare, medicaid, social security, especially as the baby boom population retires. those numbers are will go right on you. this commission idea was intended to get at those entitlements and to get at the tax revenue to help close that gap of one third. and in order to be effective, it needed teeth. what the congress did today was to take the teeth out of it. that is not only a setback here, but will cause a lot of our foreign creditors to question are we going to pay our bills, or will we be forced to start raising interest rates? that would be very dangerous indeed. >> yeah, because the only other option is to raise taxes. there's not a great appetite to do that. if you're not going after the social security, medicare, medicaid or defense spending, which is sort of eliminated, that's where most of the money is. >> that's what willie sutton would say. he would have to go after entitlements, because that's where the money is, and that's why you rob banks, as he said, that's where the money was. i must tell you, on the eve of the president's state of the union addres

in a competitive marketplace. we want a system in which seniors don't have these huge gaps in their medicare prescription drug coverage. and where medicare itself is on a sounder financial footing. those are the things that we're fighting for. and i'm not going to stop on this, because it's the right thing to do. and, by the way, if you are serious about reducing our deficit and debt, you cannot accomplish it without reforming our health care system, because that's what's gobbling up more federal dollars than anything else. i don't understand folks who say they don't want to see government spending out of control, and then are fighting reforms that the congressional budget office says would cut $1 trillion off our deficits over the next two decades. those aren't my numbers. we're never going to stop fighting to cut waste and abuse in washington. we do have to rein in deficits that have been accumulating for too long. families across the country are tightening their belts and making tough decisions. it's time for the federal government to do the same, and that's why i proposed specific step a
to freeze government spending for three years. spending related to our national security, medicare, medicaid, and social security will not be affected. but all other discretionary government programs will. like any cash-strapped family, we will work within a budget to invest in what we need and sacrifice what we don't, and if i have to enforce this discipline by veto, i will. martha: as we have told you and has been much discussed, there's always been a lot of sniping about what would actually be included in that spending freeze and how much of a difference it would make. house speaker nancy pelosi in a very controversial move not long before the speech last night said she thinks that defense spending should be part of that spending freeze. congressman adam smith is on the house armed services committee and he joins us now. congressman, welcome, good to have you here this morning. >> thank you for having me, i appreciate it. martha: what did you think about the fact that the speaker of the house, nancy pelosi, came out before the president spoke last night and said why not include defense sp
